When an English assignment forces snobby Ashbury students Lydia, Emily, and Cassie to exchange letters with low-life Brookfield guys, Lydia and Emily are surprised to find their Brookfield pen pals so kind and civilized. But after Cassie's cross-town correspondent threatens her, the friends plan a series of madcap missions designed to teach this malevolent male a lesson he won't forget.

Listener Opinions

    " when i read it, or maybe in oz, this book is called 'Finding Cassie Crazy' so it took me an age to find! "

    " From what I remember of this novel, I like how Moriarty structures her storyline using notes and letters instead of the traditional novel style. I find she has a knack for making an incredibly climax to her plot, twisting the ending in a way you wouldn't expect. However, much else of the novel is uninteresting. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Alyssa | 2/14/2014

    " This is, by far, Jaclyn Moriarty's best work. It is a timeless book that I have read at least once a year since I stumbled upon it in the local library. I normally would not like the format in which it was written but it just added so much more character to the book. This is definately a must read for every girl who ever lived or went to highschool. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Erin Sterling | 2/13/2014

    " 3.5. Reminds me a bit of The Disreputable History of Frankie Landeau Banks or the Ally Carter's Gallagher Spy School series--the same sort of fun and humor. An almost epistolary novel (with some journal entries thrown in there along with letters) of three best friends and a penpal experiment their English teacher sets up. A little bit of romance, a little bit of mystery, a little bit of revealing--overall, fun. :) My only complaint was that the villain was a bit too villainous...I wish we had found out more about him. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jamie | 2/9/2014

    " not bad. but with so many characters, there's not much room for story development for each penpal. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Lizzy | 2/1/2014

    " Don't ever read, actually. Unless you are ok with lots of cuss words... I had to stop after the first two chapters. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Katie | 1/26/2014

    " Jaclyn Moriarty might be the funniest woman alive. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Nicole | 1/20/2014

    " Although this book isn't exactly for my age group, I still enjoyed it a whole lot :) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Emma Louise | 12/17/2013

    " I read this a long time ago and enjoyed it. It's re-readable, and fun and mischevious. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 elissa | 12/8/2013

    " Wonderfully funny but substantial, too. One of my favorite 2004 titles. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sitara | 12/3/2013

    " this is the best book ever(not really ,but for now...) anyways, i recommend it to whomever wants to read it. otherwise it would be a complete waste of time if they dont want to read it. IT IS AMAZING, I JUST FINISHED IT...btw. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tegan | 11/19/2013

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Alison | 10/31/2013

    " a totally awesome book. it is hilarious and i found it really interesting. the storyline is unique and a little odd but thats what makes it so good. its definetily a book you have to read! like go get the book now and read it! :) "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Diana | 10/22/2013

    " This book is very interesting because one school is writing to another to be penpals and all. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Alexa | 6/27/2013

    " Didn't really pull me in until page 148 but good after that. Not sure how many teens will stick around until page 148... "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Sabiel | 4/12/2013

    " I'm really bored with this so far after it started off great (funny, modern-epistolary). Now I'm stuck in a middle so I'm taking a breather to read something a little more substantive. "
